Smelly hands and fingers after wearing boxing gloves

Hey guys,

I have a pair of boxing gloves that I regularly air out. They smell fine when it's not in use, but during and immediate right after working out w/ boxing gloves on, they smell like crap! Not only that, but my hands, especially my fingers and underneath the fingernails smell too.

Any solutions?

You might want to try glove dogs. They fit inside your gloves and keep them from stinkin'. There is this stuff you spray on gear (pads, redman suits,...) to keep it from smelling. I wish I knew where to get it. I will keep looking for you.

I think SSF carries them too, but I couldn't find them.

here is something i read online:

Get woodshavings (the type you put in hamster cages) and put them in an old sock and put the contraption in your gloves when your not using them

let them air out from time to time.

Trade: White King Gloves for Top King Gloves. Other items to trade.

after you wear them try putting news paper in them it absorbs the sweat left in them. just like it does with stank running shoes. it realy does take alot of the stank out of them

mr ssf told another poster with gi smell problems to Put the gi in a plastic bag and throw it in the freezer over night. It will kill the bac that cause the stink. maybe this could work on the gloves as well?

honestly, I've never heard of that approach benicio... I am not too sure if freezing your gloves would do wonders for the straps and leather though...

Should work actually. Ron's not far off on that, I do that to my glove liners sometimes when they get stankified.
